That one I'd have to think about...... Would have to build frame to support headliner because once the resin and cf is added, there's no bending the parts..... actually over that distance, there would likely be some flexibility either way. It would be cool though!!!

Well, if you want to hook up and I can check it out. My concern is that they need bend somewhat to install from what I recall. If that is the case, how we re-install? Also, do you have a sunroof?

Where R U located??? Maybe we could hook-up and take a better look @ it...... msg me through BBM Max group and we can work out details.... you're West-end right?

What colour is your interior and exterior? that will help determine which colour combinations would work best for your car.....

Give me a shout and we can talk..... Too bad, I was @ Simplycars today.... we could have hooked-up.... George will also be carrying the e36 parts (trying to get him some stock now).... Trim between vents, fusebox cover from engine and centre console are parts that will be initially available..... still working on colours, but I think the standard black cf, red kevlar and blue kevlar are the likely candidates....

Placed my next order for fabric;

Here's samples of what's arriving this week:

Black Carbon Fibre; 2x2 twill, 3K density:


Red Kevlar/Black Carbon Fibre; 2x2 twill, 3K density....


Blue Kevlar/Black Carbon Fibre; 2x2 twill, 3K density....


Looking forward to wrapping in the blue. Think it will look amazing in the right car...... Who's going to be the first?

Not sure about the headliner bud.....How the hell are you gonna get it back in after it's wrapped?? It needs to flex to get into car and be installed if I recall correctly; not an easy task wrapped in cf.... Also, I would need to figure out how to keep it's shape when wrapping it, cause if it deforms, the cf will form to that shape and be a bugger to fix..... Any thoughts or suggestions.... I'm up for the challenge if I we can figure out these points; cause wrapping something that comes out shit, sorta defeats the purpose.... PM sent though.....

REALLY NOT SURE if the headlner is doable @ all..... Way too much "normal" suff on the go to try and get into a project that for all intensive purposes has a better failure rate than likely sucess rate. We are really asking for trouble trying that piece.

Let's get those seats done first and we can go from there..

Received my new shift + e-brake boots and armrest cover.... Got the shifter boot installed (temporarily); waiting for my buddy to come by and help install permanently and assist in swapping e-brake and armrest covers.

Original automatic shifter plate still installed under the boot and is actually pressed fitted (with some 3m tape) into base..... will change once finalized..... probably during the week.

Here are a couple of pictures......







Boot a little tight @ moment when in park, but hangs nicely when in gear.... May order slightly longer boot if really needs it (this one is 1" longer than stock standard boot (estimated).....
